Suns Star, Devin Booker sidelined for Weeks

Phoenix Suns All-Star guard Devin Booker will miss at least four weeks with a left groin strain.

The team confirmed Booker's injury on Wednesday and said he would be re-evaluated after the four weeks.

Booker has missed six of the past nine games because of hamstring and groin ailments. He tried to return for the team's Christmas Day matchup against the Denver Nuggets but played just four minutes before having to leave the game.

The 26-year old averages 27.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per contest in 29 games. He is also shooting 47.7% from the field and 37.0% from the three-point range.

In the most recent full game that he played, he put up 58 points, six rebounds and five assists against the New Orleans Pelicans, with the Suns winning 118-114.

Right now, Booker is arguably the best shooting guard in the NBA, so the injury is tough news for the Suns.

The Suns are in fifth place in the Western Conference and currently have a 20-15 record.
